Simone de Beauvoir Studies added to Brill’s Journal Portfolio

Brill and the International Simone de Beauvoir Society are pleased to announce the journal Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) will be published with Brill as of 2019.

Leiden, The Netherlands  ()

Brill and the International Simone de Beauvoir Society are pleased to announce the journal Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) will be published with Brill as of 2019.

Founded in 1983 and publishing its 30th volume in 2019, SdBS is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship relevant to the writings, thinking, and legacy of Simone de Beauvoir. It also features articles that advance contemporary discussions of central themes in her oeuvre such as gender, race, and sexuality. Simone de Beauvoir Studies is one of only a few academic journals published today dedicated to the work and thought of a female philosopher. The journal is housed in the Humanities & Arts department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute under the direction of Jennifer McWeeny.

Professor Tove Pettersen (University of Oslo), President of the International Simone de Beauvoir Society, says: "We are truly delighted that our journal is to be published by Brill, a venerated leader in academic publishing. Since 1983, the journal has been instrumental as the Society has endeavored to advance outstanding scholarship related to the work of Simone de Beauvoir - one of the twentieth century's great philosophers, authors and public intellectuals. Our new affiliation with Brill will augment our capacity to foster international and interdisciplinary exchange relevant to Beauvoir scholars, contribute to dialogue and research within the humanities, social sciences and gender studies, as well as advocate the enduring importance and relevance of Simone de Beauvoir's body of work within context of contemporary life and political debate."

Publication of the 30th volume will commence in June 2019 and all previous volumes of the journal will also be placed on the Brill website at that time. For more information on the journal visit or contact the Acquisitions Editor Jennifer Pavelko via Here you will find Calls for Papers for thematic issues on "The New Face of Simone de Beauvoir Studies" (Vol. 30, no. 1) and "Beauvoir in Conversation" (Vol. 30, no 2), both to appear in 2019.
